94w ago - Sega Public Relations Manager David Bruno has revealed details today on House of the Dead: Overkill Naked Terror for the PS3 entertainment system.
To quote: I'm pleased to be able to reveal some more exclusive news for you; this time in the form of a new level reveal.
We're proud to announce the details for the first of two exclusive levels from the Extended Cut; Naked Terror.
Naked Terror sees you fighting your way through a strip club (a real hardship I know), the streets of Bayou City and a bar, and not only do you have new environments to battle your way through, you also have new stripper and biker mutants to contend with.
The other cool aspect to this new level is who you play as, for this level G and Wash are elsewhere, leaving you to take control of Varla (previously an NPC in the original Overkill) and her stripper friend Candy.
Candy seems to have the required staples for any standard stripper: she has a heart of gold, is wholesome, innocent, yet can be naïve to the world. There is one big difference though between her and her stripper brethren; our heroine is pretty handy with a hand cannon, and skilfully adept at taking down enemies. Sounds like my kind of woman really.
There are connections between her and Jasper (the boss at the...
96w ago - 2K Games Community Manager Ronnie Singh has revealed three NBA 2K12 PS3 game covers today featuring Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson complete with PlayStation Move support.
To quote: Today I am extremely excited to announce the cover for NBA 2K12, the latest game in the unrivaled basketball video game franchise that sold over 5 million units last year and garnered over 20 'Sports Game of the Year' accolades.
As a kid, I remember watching basketball religiously. Looking back, there were three icons in the basketball world that stood out for me, all for their different strengths. I imagine you late 20s-early 30s gamers know exactly who I am talking about.
Fast forward to 2011. Yes, this year we have not one, not two, but three cover athletes! And not just any three players. We're talking about three of the NBA's greatest legends: Michael Jordan, Larry Bird and Magic Johnson.
As you can see, the new stylized NBA 2K12 covers are a unique, one-time departure from the traditional 2K Sports brand artwork and spotlight each legendary athlete on his famous team: Michael Jordan on the Chicago Bulls, Larry Bird on the Boston Celtics, and Magic Johnson on the Los Angeles Lakers.
100w ago - SCEE Content Producer Simon Bramble has revealed a Q&A today for Tomb Raider PS3 dubbed Searching for Lara Croft.
To quote: Lara Croft is returning in a completely new Tomb Raider that takes the series in a grittier new direction.
I recently caught up with Noah Hughes, creative director Crystal Dynamics, to explore this new adventure.
How does it feel to be bringing Lara back in an all-new take on the Tomb Raider series?
Noah Hughes: It's an honor to be able to not only work with Lara Croft and Tomb Raider, but also to be able to reboot the franchise. I've been at developer Crystal Dynamics for a while now, and we've had the pleasure of making a few games starring Lara. We've learned a lot. To be able to distill everything we want to do with the franchise into an entirely fresh take is inspiring.
So it's a totally new direction for the series?
NH: It is. It's a reboot and not directly related to the timeline of Lara as such, but it will touch on familiar elements of her character. You'll see her grow into the hero figure that fans know and love.
Is it going to reference the events of past games at all?
NH: It starts a whole different timeline. There's...
104w ago - Today Sony's Hardware Product Marketing Manager Anand Agarwal has revealed that an official Wireless Stereo Headset is coming for the PS3 entertainment system.
According to their official site, surround sound on the PS3 requires system software version 3.70 or later and surround sound does not work with Blu-ray Disc movies.
To quote: Do you hear that sound? It's the sound of the enemy approaching your bunker. Only you've heard them way before they've even seen you and now your commandos are ready to unload.
What's your advantage? It's simple - the official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset - the latest addition to the PlayStation 3 accessories family.
The official PS3 Wireless Stereo Headset will be available for $99.99 (MSRP) at retailers nationwide this September. Many more of your favorite franchises, such as Killzone and Gran Turismo, were also designed for surround sound audio.
Featuring 7.1 virtual surround sound, the Wireless Stereo Headset lets you hear all the minor in-game audio clues...
105w ago - Today Insomniac Games Senior Community Manager James Stevenson has officially revealed the Resistance 3 PS3 box art and logos to fans.
To quote: Today we're proud to reveal the Resistance 3 box art that you can hold in your hands when the game hits store shelves on September 6th. You should recognize right away that this graphic version of the Chimeran Skull with the New York skyline depicted as its teeth, as well as the stylized version of the Resistance franchise logo, isn't your typical "rendered hero" box art.
To create this new look, we partnered with Olly Moss, a talented British artist, to create a bold vision of the Resistance 3 box art for both the North American and European territories.
The Resistance team worked closely with Olly to share our vision for the Chimera-occupied 1957, and Joesph Capelli's journey across the destroyed USA to his destination, New York City. You'll see this in the alternate version of the art below, which shows Capelli walking towards the NYC skyline.
We wanted Olly's work to reflect that in Resistance 3, YOU are the Resistance. Resistance 3 isn't a military shooter, as the United States Army and SRPA have been destroyed. Instead, Resistance 3 is about the remnants...
